Legendary American rock climber Tommy Caldwell joins us in Banff to share his latest accomplishment – a newly published memoir The Push: A Climber’s Journey of Endurance, Risk, and Going beyond Limits. The memoir was fine-tuned at Banff Centre under a Paul D. Fleck Fellowship in 2016. Caldwell was a 2014 National Geographic Adventurer of the Year and is a recipient of the Piolet d’Or, along with Alex Honnold, for their completion of the Fitz Traverse in Patagonia.
Presentation followed by films in competition.

Using some of the most visually stunning cinematography ever shot, Mountain is a collaboration with Banff Centre alumnus Richard Tognetti, the Australian Chamber Orchestra, and award winning filmmaker Jennifer Peedom, that explores the nature of our fascination with mountains. Mountain shows us the spellbinding force of high places – and their ongoing power to shape our lives and our dreams.
